Bruno Aveillan of Quad Group directed this public service film for The Directorate of Security and Road Traffic (Securite Routiere), France’s road safety board created within the Ministry of the Interior.

Conceived by a creative team at Paris ad agency La Chose, the public service piece titled "The Sunshine Highway" ("l’Autoroute du soleil") shows the consequence of reckless driving and excessive vehicular speed. The short focuses on Henri who’s taking his family on a road trip. Set back by some unexpected delays, he decides to make up for lost time by speeding. Yet, after rounding a curve in the road, he rear-ends another car stuck in traffic. A voiceover tells us how his decision shatters lives--and not just those in the car but those of families, associates and friends.
